Health law attorney Christianna Finnern will present a CE Spot session at the 2019 Star of the North meeting on April 26, 2019. The Minnesota Dental Association’s Star of the North Meeting is the premier state dental meeting of the Upper Midwest. With over 100 continuing education seminars, the Star of the North Meeting provides current clinical and practice management information to the dental community.

Christianna’s educational session, “Opioid Prescribing: Reducing Your Risk and Curbing Patient Abuse,” will focus on stories about dentists’ role in the opioid crisis, and how they continue to be in the news. Most recently, a December 2018 study linked dentists’ prescribing of opioids to teens and young adults with increased risk for abuse. In this CE Spot, you will learn how to insulate your practice from risk while appropriately managing your patients’ pain. You’ll also get a brief update on controlled substance prescribing enforcement actions at the state and federal level.

This presentation is open to all registered Star of the North attendees and requires no additional ticket.
